The Busola four-part episode video published by YNaija TV, has generated several support from support from Nigerians, including politicians, celebrities and civil society organisations, and our report on GYOnlineNG.COM, had it that a rape case report is filing against Fatoyinbo in the coming week.
“We have more than 30 people who are ready to testify against him,” said Segun Awosanya, who is working with Citizen Gavel, a civic tech organisation, on the case. “Busola’s case is just one out of the plethora of abuses that we have heard.”
I have seen Biodun Fatoyinbo’s statement. I look forward to him carrying out his threat to sue Busola Dakolo. As Mrs Dakolo doesn’t have a church that can fund her defence, I have set aside a little money to contribute to her defence. Please do so too. #IStandWithBusolaDakolo

Dear @pastorbiodun of #COZA, please it’s only fair that you respond in your personal capacity and not as @cozaglobal because both of you are separate and distinct legal persons- do not drag the body of Christ into this. The accusations were made against you not #Coza.
